Bathrooms

It's all blue and white A mid-century home on the edge of the Californian desert used a perfectly balanced mix of serene blues, tactile glass and pristine whites to create a cooling, relaxing retreat from hot desert winds. It’s a winning colour palette that can work equally well in coastal bathrooms. Colour inspiration came from the blue skies of the surrounding desert with key fixtures such as glass basins and contemporary styled cast iron bath coming from Kohler. The light grey high gloss floor tiles add a further dimension to the otherwise two-toned space – while the white fixtures pop in contrast to the serene blue wall hues.

The unique texture of Kohler’s Nature’s Chemistry spun glass basins is the perfect complement to the sleek, hard surfaces – there are a number in the range, including the Kallos multi-faceted under bench design and the beautifully crafted cast glass Antilia Wading Pool model. The Reve cast iron bath is a refreshing contemporary take on the traditional freestanding bath – its modernist design incorporates geometric faceted lines, wider back ledge for storage of bathing products and elevated plinth to increase the architectural statement of the piece. Wallmount tapware contributes to the clean, uncluttered aesthetic and Kohler’s Purist and Stillness collections provide perfectly balanced, simply designed options. And in warm climates it’s essential to get the showering options right! Here the owners have used a combination of the bluetooth enabled Moxie and the overhead RainCan shower head. Moxie


Gardening

streams music, talk and podcasts directly into the shower stall through an integrated speaker in the showerhead. Both sound quality and water coverage, rated at 3 star WELS, are excellent. The RainCan shower head meanwhile features Katalyst Spray Technology whereby a luxurious and drenching rainshower experience is delivered (while maintaining a 3 star WELS rating). The shower cleverly introduces two litres of air into the water stream every minute to create large, drenching water droplets that both massage and rejuvenate the skin.
